Student Group Funding

 

All SU affiliated Student Groups are entitled to funding, however there are ways in which you can gain some extra cash for your club or society, such as Top-Up grants. You should be able to find all the information you need below, but in doubt please email Roger Weston.

GIVE IT A GO GRANTS

The Give-it-a-go Grant is for Students’ Union affiliated Student Groups, a group of students that want to form a group to explore ways of solving a specific social problem, individual students or University of Northampton alumni (No more than 2 years). The purpose of the funding is to allow students to:

  • Improve their own skills so that they can apply them to solving the social problem
  • Develop the solution to the social problem
  • Measure the impact of the solution
